HC Deb 11 November 1966 vol 735 cc368-9W
Sir C. Osborne

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer since the banks now have £160 million to lend, for which suitable borrowers were not available, if he will take the earliest opportunity of recommending a reduction in the Bank Rate, and so relieve industry of the burden of high interest rates; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Callaghan

I have no statement to make.
